2:14 pm
>> and so we are going to, that is exactly right. if everybody can just so kelley, judy, all of you, this is president james, i am thinking that you and i have not had a change to meet her before and if you have it might have been out in the community. welcome to the commission meeting. and before we go any farther, i know that you have folks that you work with every day who provide incredible support, for you to do the jobs that you are being honored for today, and so could everybody that works with this wonderful group of people, stand up please? all of you. >> all of you [ applause ] now i want the rest of you to look around, because these are the people, these people need people, and the folks that you
2:15 pm
are talking to whenever you call in, or if you make a referral for someone else and they call in, these are the folks who are the hub, the center point of the department of aging and adult services. so, really, i think that a gift to our community and certainly an important piece of how people get probably the most critical piece of how people find services in this community, and so i am going to go on and on a little bit this morning, because this is my pride and joy. and so, i have to say, there is nothing better than living in a community like san francisco where there is all kinds of services, right? and all kinds of services for people, to use to stay at home. but, there are other side of that is that there is nothing worse if you can't find it.
2:16 pm
right? and so, it does not do much good if it is all there but you are the daughter, the mother, or the person themselves who is really looking for those services and can't find them, or, they find somebody who kind of knows about services, but they lead them down the path and so they get lost on the wrong path, maybe have someone turn them to the right services at some point. and so that is what these folks do. thanks to jason, ask the supervisors in this unit, and all of the experience and training and gifts that you all bring. folks who come to us who actually have that opportunity to go down the right road. now, the reason that we are honoring this particular group of folks out of our intake and information unit this morning, is that and the commission will appreciate it because we have been talking about this now for quite some time and we have a
2:17 pm
contract, with the cms, the center for medicare and medicare, and medicare and medicaid and this contract, is to help people leave hospitals and not come back. and the idea is to reverse those lower readmission rates and have people be healthy when they are at home, right? and so they don't have to go back and so that the life goes on for them in a much better way. so, we were one of about 100 sites across the country that cms contracted with and we have partnered with nhphs who also has six other community partners that we work with, and this is a big, big deal, four hospital systems, 7 campuses. and we have the beauty of this program for us, has been and it has been a lot, but the beauty has been that we have had the flexibility to try to do the different things, right? over time and this did not work and we tried something else and this worked and we kept doing it, so this group goes bed
2:18 pm
side, into the hospitals into those seven hospitals. and they work with that consumer, that patient, one on one, to help them use the tools that we put in place to go home, be successful at home, to the coaches, that are out of the contract, and not go back. and we have had a reduction in those readmissions which we are enormously proud of and so i can't thank you enough and i have to say, this has been, i would say one of the biggest struggles in all of my years that i have been and i am 66, and i have been doing this for 40-plus years and these systems are so big. they are just so big that they are hard to penetrate and just when you have a contract in place and everything is going smoothly, and something has to pop up and we have to have more
2:19 pm
shots or this background test or have this or that and this team, of their own volition has agreed to do things because they wanted the program to succeed. and so i cannot thank you enough. we are really thanks to you, we believe that we will have at least going into the spring with a new contract with cms and all of the people are being cut off but we are still moving for ward and it really is because of all of this enormously hard work and dedication and you are being willing to go beyond, what is job, really is required, maria you did not hear that. okay. >> and thank you to jason and the team and thank you to all of the folks who work in this unit because the truth is, you all can't do what you do, unless the folks that are here and part of your team, do the pieces that they do as well,
2:20 pm
and so, thank you, and i think jason... [ applause ] and so i can't say it any better, but i do want to echo, what director said about the staff here, and doing the hospital out reach work, and they are going bed side, and really earning every single one of those referrals, they are not a passive recipient of these referrals so this month, 547 referrals meant, 547 face-to-face contacts with individuals in hospitals offering transitional care services and all of the other services that we provide and it has been an incredible part of our program doing this hospital out reach, and i just also want to acknowledge everyone in the intake, because the people up here, there are a portion of our larger staff, and there is about 25 or so, individuals that really keep the unit
2:21 pm
humming and with the increase that we have seen over 50 percent, in just the last few months, we have not had additional staffing. and the people who are doing the transitional care, work in house, processing referrals and processing all of the other referrals and providing information assistance, we have been able to provide that at the same level and the quality that we are providing before this massive increase and so it is congratulations to everyone and i also as you said, i want to acknowledge all of the struggles that we have been phased with in the hospital, and really just the per severe and just continue to get more referrals and see more people with all of those struggles. so thank you. >> i misspoke, i said seven campuses but we are now in nursing facility and more campuses than before and i
2:22 pm
would just share with you that i happen to be at a function where nancy pilosi and i made a pitch for our program if we had to appeal with cms we would be back in contact with her for her assistance, but given the new numbers this month this looks like we are forgo writing a letter of appeal, thank you. i think that we need a picture. i don't know how we are going to do th. but somebody has got to get a picture and i don't know if i always end up on the end. and there is a lot of short people in this group today. okay come on. >> and i just want to say, while they are getting together on this picture, that last week, i attended three days of cms training. and i tell you, it was gruesome, but you did look at all of the policies and everything and what is happening with people and i can't remember everything, but
2:23 pm
i kind of know where things should go, you should go here or go to this person over there and i did go and see one of my clients out in the neighborhood, and they are at a home and i am so glad, i am a nurse, and i know what you are doing. and i used to do the inspections with them in the hospitals and i know how important it is and i want to thank you, you guys look so young. and you are too young, but any way, great job. great job, thank you. >> are you going to pass out the... >> yes, i got so busy. okay. they are in order according to
2:24 pm
the agenda.
2:25 pm
>> thank you, that is always the fun part of the commission meeting. next on at genda, we have reports could we have director's anne hinton's report? >> good morning, commissioners. president, james. and i just, i think that one thing that i want to highlight this morning, the white house has announced that there is going to be a white house conference in 2015. and it is going to be different than the past ones have been and i think that the last one was in... actually ten years ago. and i was still, and i believe
2:26 pm
that chuck from central latino was one of the delegates to that conference. so in the past, delegates have been elected from all of the states and chosen, and sent to washington it has been a very, very big event, and there were caucuses looking at platforms and discussion of policy, and things that they might want to go in to the older (inaudible) and so on, and because congress has not and we are under a continued resolution and we don't have a budget, at this point, or a significant or a regular budget, no money has been set aside for a white house conference and so the white house itself has pulled together, about 3 million dollars, to go ahead and host something in 2015. and national association of associations on aging was briefed on what information is available at this point, by the
2:27 pm
lead person from the white house. and so this is the information that we have. and some time between now and april, there will be ten listening sessions held in different parts of the country. and assistant secretary, greenly will be at those listening sessions and we are not sure, if other folks from the federal government will be there or not, but she will be there and at this point, we don't know the dates and we don't know the cities, but clearly, california, where she will be chosen and we are such a big city and frankly, and when we had the older american act hearings and we had one right here in san francisco with the assistant secretary and so the regional office is here and so we have a lot of reason to think that we might be chosen, but really what we want is one held in california, for sure. the white house has picked four topic areas that they will be focusing on and they are broad
2:28 pm
and we believe that the things that we are most interested in will fall within these four areas. and so the first one is elder justice. the second one is long term care services and supports, the third is economic and retirement issues, things that helped people to retire successfully. and i am just blanking on the fourth one, but... oh, livable communities and so you can see that pretty much, anything is going to fall within those four areas. we believe that the listening sessions although we don't have a lot of detail will cover all of those so they will not have one for each topic and they will be and we are already in our state, organizing ourselves around the four issues to have the testimony and present. the california association on aging is talking about doing more than the ten sessions and
2:29 pm
maybe holding a local events, and where we could gather information, especially if we are not one of the listening sites, and especially gathering the information that we might send them on to washington. and there is going to be once, those sessions have taken place, and there will be smaller groups brought together on each of those four topics to discuss, and i think, more in depth, what has come out of those listening sessions and also, with those other comments, and other pieces of information that belong in those documents, the president has determined that there will be four federal agencies involved in this process, so there will be hud, labor, and health and human services and justice. and so, all four of those agencies will be looking at the
2:30 pm
input that comes in to determine whether there will be any policy issues that kill be addressed immediately or for the long term and we have a white house conference and not only are there delegates but congress and the white house are involved. so, you know, the picking up of pieces of legislation and moving those forward, and the white house doing its work, you know, there is a joint commitment to that. but at this point, we are not saying that. because again, congress has not weighed in on this and they have not supplied the money for it and we are not sure where that will go. if there is talk now that the white house conference itself, will be in the fall or maybe as late as december. and they were originally talking about maybe having 200 people from all over the country come to washington, and in a celebration as well as a i guess, probably looking
